Are you looking to enjoy the fresh air and beautiful scenery of Cape Cod without going to the beach? Need to get away from all the other tourists, the smell of the ocean, and get in touch with nature a bit more? You could go all Emerson or Thoreau and live out in the woods all summer instead of staying in Cape Cod vacation homes. The easier route is to go hiking on one of hundreds of trails located all over the Cape.
Whether you’re looking for an arduous hike or a peaceful walk, you can find winding trails that lead you through the dense woods. Take in the scenery and the faint scent of pine as you enjoy a peaceful and quiet constitutional. Bring plenty of water with you, healthy snacks with lots of protein (like trail mix, of course!), and wear comfortable shoes for hiking. Sneakers are good as long as their walking/hiking sneakers and not a pair of Converse. I know they’re stylish but your feet will hate you.
There are literally trails located over the entire island so no matter where you are staying, there is a trail waiting to be walked on! Step out of your Cape Cod house and hit the trails.
